Delight Your Palate with 3 Hearty Dishes at Way Modern Chinois

Way Modern Chinois @ Damansara Heights has always been one of my go-to destinations not only because of its location which is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but also for its exquisite fine-dining Chinese menu with a twist. Once stepping out of the elevator, you will probably be overwhelmed with the restaurant’s contemporary and sophisticated furnishings. 

If you are an avid foodie, this is where you should belong to! Of course there are superb dishes here that are loved by diners which I don’t want you to miss out. Let’s figure out! 

 
1/ Truffle Roast Duck

If you have a knack for duck meat and truffle, this Truffle Roast Duck is the perfect selection for you! After being marinated with truffle sauce, the duck is double roasted with truffle oil and topped with truffle slices – a pure indulgence for any gourmet hunters. I was in love with its crispy skin, flavorful meat and of course, the truffle sauce which filled my palate with an umami goodness. Due to its demanding requirement, the dish needs to be pre-ordered 24 hours in advance.

2/ Trio Dim Sum Collection

Next comes Trio Dim Sum Collection which includes “Skinless” XLB 特色小笼包 (4pcs), Pac Man Dumplings 四川虾饺 (4pcs), and Golden Rose Wanton 玫瑰云吞 (5pcs). The dish has an eye-pleasing presentation which can capture any diners’ hearts! The “Skinless” XLB, wrapped in a transparent skin, tempted my palate with its sumptuous broth and minced meat topped with tangy foamy ginger and vinegar dip. The Pac Man Dumplings teased my taste buds with the fresh steamed prawns marinated in Szechuan spices and spicy ponzu while the Golden Rose Wanton was tasty with its crispy prawn dumplings and dashes of red sauce.

3/ Crispy Lion Fish

Finally, Crispy Lion Fish! Don’t worry, it’s not the endangered species we are talking about! The dish is indeed a deep-fried sea bass in disguise! The fillet was cut skillfully and deep fried until it opened up, nicely moist underneath the light brown crust. Dip the fish inside the sweet and sour sauce and your taste buds will be delighted with every piece. A hearty dish of the fresh-water fish!

3 Dishes That Will Sure Gratify Your Palate at Luce Osteria Contemporanea

Having been a big fan of heritage and colonial buildings, I turned myself into a frequent visitor to Old Malaya – located at Jalan Raja Chulan, right after my first time here. The nearly 100-year-old building was skillfully revitalized into gorgeous heritage-modeled dining spots, making it one of the prominent culinary hub for foodies in KL. 

Luce Osteria Contemporanea is one of the restaurants here that won my heart! What’s better than sipping a glass of cocktail, taking in the majestic beauty of KL tower while savoring classic Italian dishes? Of course, there are dishes here that you should not miss out and I’m willing to share with you in this post! 

 

1/ Il Gran Tagliere

Click here to view Luce Osteria Contemporanea

The first dish that you definitely should not forgo is this II Gran Tagliere which is a selection of premium cold cuts with cheeses, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes and caper berries! Featuring imported cold cuts cured for at least 6 to 18 months such as Parma Ham (18 months), Mortadella, Coppa, Salame Napoli, Smoked Peck and Italian Honey Ham, the dish totally satiated my taste buds. I was also impressed to know the cheeses here are specifically curated and imported from different regions of Italy. A delectable delight!

2/ Sole Pizza (Sun-Shaped Pizza)

Click here to view Sun-Shaped Pizza at Luce Osteria Contemporanea

The next dish – Sole Pizza, has such an eye-catching presentation that you might not be able to take your eyes off it! This interesting pizza is also known as the Sun Pizza because of its sun-like shape. Topped with Mozzarella cheese, tomatoes sauce, rocket salad, sliced tomatoes and baked using imported Italian wood-fired oven, the pizza had unique and smoky flavors which were out-standing! The Burrata Pugliese on top was a fresh light Italian cheese which really mingled well with the pizza for its an unusually soft texture.

3/ La Porchetta 

Click here to view La Porchetta at Luce Osteria Contemporanea

The final dish, as well as my top favorite dish, is this La Porchetta Using high-quality suckling pig to debone and stuff with pork sausage, Mortadella, capsicums, artichokes and Mozzarella cheese, this traditional Italian dish had a moist texture and packed with flavors. The beef stew cooked with Parma Ham was served along to further accentuate the taste of the dish, making it a hard-to-resist delicacy!

Celebrate Margarita Day with 5 Fascinating Facts About Margarita!

Have you heard of Margarita Day? Well, there is and it falls on February 22nd! Of course, this is a great excuse for you to revel in this much-loved cocktail. Grab your chair, chill with a glass of Margarita and check out 5 fascinating facts about Margarita! 

Wondering about a place to indulge in this popular delight in Klang Valley? We save the best for the last so keep on reading and awards are waiting for you ahead! 

 

Fun Fact #1: Nobody Is Sure About Its Origin

Click here to view Margarita at Nobu Kuala LumpurImage Cre: Nobu Kuala Lumpur

Theories are varied about how Margaritas were first originated. Some say that the first Margarita was mixed in Juárez, Chihuahua by Francisco “Pancho” Morales in 1942. Others believe the real inventor of this impeccable drink is Margarita Sames as she concocted this for her guests in her vacation home in 1948. Another common story is the cocktail was actually invented by head bartender Santos Cruz for his favorite singer Peggy (Margaret) Lee and named the drink after her Spanish version of name – Margarita.   

Fun Fact #2: Margarita Actually Means “Daisy” In Spanish! 

Click here to view DaisyImage Cre: unsplash

Margarita is named after this beautiful flower? It might surprise you but it’s actually not! “Daisy” – a refreshingly tart cocktail with a slightly sweet undertone, is an old drink dated back to mid-1800s. This cocktail includes a spirit as a base, sugar with some citrus for a bit of sour taste. Many believe that Margaritas are inspired by this special cocktail as it is basically a tequila Daisy.

 

Fun Fact #3: What Is That Salted Rim Used For?

No matter how many variations there are, you probably hardly see a Margarita without its salted rim. The salt actually plays an important role to enhance the whole experience of this much-loved cocktail as it brings out the sweet and sour flavors and reduce the bitterness of the tequila. Furthermore, salt can intensify the aroma of Margarita, making it a more flavorful treat. 

 

Fun Fact #4: The Most Expensive Margarita In The World? 

Click here to view The Most Expensive MargaritaImage Cre: standard.co.uk

Would you be willing to pay $1200 for a glass of Margarita? It was in 2013 when the most expensive Margarita in the world was concocted at 230 FIFTH Rooftop Bar & Penhouse Lounge in Manhattan. This frozen delicacy was made using the most high-end ingredients with the tequila alone costs up to $1800 per bottle while its ice was made from a $450 bottle of Lois Roederer Cristal Champagne. Finally, the drink was poured into Ralph Lauren hand-blown Hungarian crystal glass! Half the money of this was donated to a charity afterwards. 

 

Fun Fact #5: The World First Frozen Margaritas Were Only Invented Around 50 Years Back!

Click here to view Margarita Image Cre: liquor.com

A world without frozen Margaritas? Yes, it was what happened before 1971! The first frozen Margarita machine was invented in Texas by a school dropout named Mariano Martinez. The 26-year-old restaurateur had an immense trouble creating the frozen drinks for customers at that time. The cocktails were time-consuming and easily melted! Inspired by the soft-serve ice cream machine, Mariano came across the idea to make a customized one for Margaritas and this machine can now be found all over the world! 

 

If you love to unwind with this incredible cocktail, here is a quick guide on where to find it in Klang Valley!
Want to celebrate Margarita week? Head to Chambers Bar at Hilton Kuala Lumpur for special Margarita event from 18th – 24th February to enjoy a variety of Margarita mixes or come to FOOK from 22nd February – 2nd March to relish special hand-crafted Margaritas from RM30!

3 Spectacular Dishes at Opium @ Bukit Bintang!

Rooted in the corner of the culinary and entertainment hub – Changkat Bukit Bintang, Opium has always attracted diners for its impressive outlook which is reminiscent of oriental Shanghainese theme. Not only loved for their creative cocktails (such as the Zhu Ba Jie cocktail for CNY 2019 celebration), the restaurant also offers a variety of Asian Oriental delights with a twist. 

I came to the restaurant to unwind after a hectic week. Inspired by the Opium regimes of the East, the interior is furnished with aged-old artifacts which is just perfect to relax and drift back in time. Of course, I also took this chance to find out 3 dishes that diners are most interested in when they come here!


1/ Signature Ulam Quinoa Served with Beef Rendang and Fried Squid

The first dish – Signature Ulam Quinoa Served with Beef Rendang and Fried Squid, is the epitome of “Asian Oriental delights with a twist”! This authentic Asian dish is ingeniously prepared with a combination of fine ingredients including 7 herbs, dried shrimps, onions, ginger, coconut served with pickled cucumbers and omelette. The Angus Beef Rendang was skillfully cooked to make it fork-tender while the fried squid pleased my taste buds with its crunchy texture – ideal to mingle with the refreshing Ulam Quinoa.

This lip-smacking Crispy Lemon-Orange Butter Chicken has become one of my favorite dishes after the first time trying. Cooked with lemon plum sauce and orange juice, the deep-fried chicken was imparted a hint of sweetness and tangy flavors. This hot-to-your-table dish is beautifully presented and served with a choice of Poppy Seed Rice or Lotus Leaf Buns – totally a must-try delight!

The last dish – Curry Spaghettini with Salmon, is a true winner for its irresistible aroma. The house-made spaghettini is meticulously crafted and cooked in a fragrant coconut broth with spices and ingredients like dried shrimps, chicken, tofu puffs and more! The salmon fillet on top absorbed the curry base and to my surprise, it was not flaky at all. Rich in flavors with a touch of moderate spiciness, this dish is something you just cannot miss out.

Originated from Spain, tapas are now presented in restaurants from all over the world in the form of small plates, snacks or appetizers. From a bowl of olives to creative tapas with a peculiar touch, tapas are undeniably loved by many! While some may think tapas are just smaller versions of foods, they are actually more than that!

Did you know “tapa” literally means “cover”? Many believe that in the beginning, tapas were merely pieces of bread that were placed over a glass just to keep the flies away. It is said that during the 10th century, Spanish King – Alfronso, had a severe illness and all he could eat were small bites of foods with wine. Once recovered, the King declared that wine can’t be served without a small bite of food and there came the flourish of tapas in Spanish bars!  


 

2/ Tapas used to be free and were simple dishes like almonds or olives!

Nowadays you can see tapas in various shapes and styles; however, when they were first originated, tapas were actually foods that required little to no preparation. As free snacks for drinking occasions, these small dishes can be as simple as a hunk of bread, a dish of olives, almonds or milk cheese! After Spain came in contact with other countries, tapas also started to evolve as bar owners had strived to come up with new ideas for tapas to stand out from the rest. 

 

3/ Tapeo – The Art Of Eating Tapas

Spanish tapas are sumptuous yet the tapas concept is actually not only based on the food itself! Tapeo – the art of eating tapas, is simply the gathering of people to share and socialize. In Spain, it has become a part of the Spanish way of living – sharing memories and hour-long conversations with their family members and friends over a glass of wine or beer together with delicious tapas. Come to a tapas bar and you will be likely to see a lively ambience filled with laughter because after all, tapas connect people! 
 

4/ Tapas are varied in different regions.

While you may think that tapas are just the same all over Spain, they are actually more varied than you thought. Different regions have their own specialties and even their own stories! Come to the North for their famous mini toasts with scrumptious toppings, to the central and Southern Spain to taste Iberican Ham and Chorizo and head to the coastal South for fish tapas! Each city also has its iconic tapas such as Barcelona and their renowned Patatas Bravas (Spicy Potatoes).
